Okay folks, not folks, and whatever else you care to be or not be.

 

Here we go. I am going to attempt the challenge I half-jokingly laid before the Goblin Lunar Emperor when Ma'al Drakar was first introduced to us. Five Heads in Five Days. The Goal, to paint the entire sculpt, including base and terrain piece in under 120 consecutive hours. That is a full five days, using nothing larger than a size 0 brush to apply paint to the figure. The Official rules give a full week of seven days, but I, being completely insane, have decided to attempt to shave two days off that, in honor of the dragons five headed stature. I honestly do not know if it is possible for me to do, and retain any sense of sanity. So, come along for the ride, at best, we get to see a feat of daring do conquered, at worst, you get to watch my mind degrade even farther. For you the viewer, I would call that a win/win.

and...I'm moving of start until tomorrow evening, unless it rains. It's been a long day, and I really don't feel like starting of on an exhausting project, while already tired out. 

 

Wise decision. Ma'al is a serious beastie, and you'll want to be in top fighting condition when you enter the ring! 

 

As for attempting to do it in 5 days...dang. I see that the insanity is already beginning to set in. 

 

I salute you, sir, and wish you the very best of luck in this mad adventure! 

 

Huzzah!

but mine does not involve turnips

 

 

it is ten minutes to eight, at 8:00 pm Mountain Standard, I shall begin.

Here we have my weapons for the upcoming battle. Several brushes size  or smaller, some new, many not. And the secret to my plan. Pre selected and mixed primer/basecoat combinations. Now, as I fire up my playlist. Let the battle begin

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..
